Record label Suicide Squeeze just released a two-song offering from Cherry Glazerr that captures a rapidly maturing band delivering tenfold on all of the potential hinted at across Haxel Princess and proves they will be a force to be reckoned with for years to come. After previously streaming “Had Ten Dollaz”, the band is now back with “Nurse Ratched” which Singer Clementine Creevy told Noisey is inspired by the eponymous character from One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, “I guess the book really resonated with me; she’s such a dynamic character. I guess I wanted to exploit her character a little further, given the storyline and the fact that she’s very manipulative and makes her patients feel like children,” she says. “But you know, ultimately she is the insane one.” The single is limited to 750 vinyl copies and can be purchased via this link.

Any discussion of Cherry Glazerr is going to have a few obvious bullet points. First and foremost, the band is astonishingly young, with frontwoman / guitarist Clementine Creevy and drummer Hannah Uribe still not old enough to vote and bassist Sean Redman just barely above the drinking age. And then there’s the fact that the band’s debut cassette, Papa Cremp, was released by California’s current kings of DIY Power Pop and Garage Rock, Burger Records. So even if you know nothing else about the Los Angeles trio, you know that they’re young and that they’re a part of the thriving underground community of stripped-down jubilant Rock n’ Roll. But if you’re envisioning a bunch of awkward, hyperactive kids bouncing around in their parent’s basement, consider the fact that the band has been championed and photographed by French fashion designer Hedi Slimane of Saint Laurent. Slimane even commissioned a song from the band to score his Women’s runway at Paris Fall Fashion Week 2014. The result was “Had Ten Dollaz”, a song that captures Cherry Glazerr’s knack for dualities: Sultry and virulent, sophisticated and casual, laid back and bombastic, playful and deliberate. Suicide Squeeze Records is pairing up “Had Ten Dollaz” with the equally intoxicating b-side “Nurse Ratched” as a limited edition 7”. The record is limited to 750 copies (250 on fluorescent lemon lime vinyl, 500 on black) and includes a download code. The 7” is available worldwide and is also available digitally.
